Using CS5, NIK collection  and Topaz filters.

Thanks to Stanley Hattman for suggesting BW for this place. Even if it was not that easy. A bit too much texture made it look dirty at first so a bit of "handiwork" was needed.

See more from this place  Fire ruin lens flares in the photo blog.
And also the post before this one on this blog. #Ruined or...."

Linking up with the following memes. My thanks to the hosts:
